What do people normally do when they were 12 years old? Learning, playing, and maybe surviving?

Joseph Harris, a former black hat hacker and now a white hat hacker, and bug bounty hunter, at age of 12 started stealing other people's game accounts, using social engineering to trick the email providers or game companies to hand him the data that he needs to hack and steal other people's account!

In this episode, Joseph told the stories of how he went from stealing simple gaming accounts, into sim-swapping, and stealing millions in crypto altcoins, which ultimately resulted in him being in jail.

He also recounts all the techniques that he used to hack into people's accounts, exploiting bugs on service providers' websites like Verizon, Gmail, Yahoo, AOL, and more.
